    In my exchanges with you - you ran from the truth like a cockroach from a kitchen light.

    lol true, and now his new gimmick is having mods close his threads when they aren't to his liking; he wants to spout nonsense and then have everybody's posts deleted that don't fit his nutjob viewpoints. lol what a hoot.

    Each side is largely parroting talking points from their favorite pundits and there is very little real rationalizing. So far as the liberal faction is concerned - you can beat them over the head for hours with facts, destroy nearly all their arguments and they will still keep insisting they are right - they are the victims of conditioning. Basically you can lead a horse to water but can't make it drink and you can lead ta libtard to facts but can't make it think. .......

    I think that somewhere between a college thesis and tweet should be acceptable.

    In my mind the problem is that people put a little thought in creating a post of say ten paragraphs only to have one or two children multi quoting that post with responses like "you're a moron" or "imbecile"... or such like. If you take the time to match them insult for insult, your reply gets deleted and the post that was initially offending gets to stay up.

    Isn't that what this thread is really about?

    This is true. Or the thoughtful intelligent posts are basically ignored while the ones that say "Obama sucks" or "Trump sucks" get like 20 "thanks." Lol. It just goes to show the level that some people are at is all, IMO.

    If it is an important enough issue to me, I will back up my position with links and take some time in typing out a post. Most of the stuff that goes on around this forum though . . . . :uhh: I just read and figure I'm probably just wasting my time in most cases.

    Hopefully, by taking the time to express your views on this thread, the moderators / administrators will take a hint.

    I feel exactly as you do. A few days ago I posted and it took a good dozen paragraphs with many links. ONE LINK was questionable. And so, a board troll began calling me an idiot, imbecile dumb f***, etc. and I challenged him on his childish manner. I pointed out how immature his posts were and how he had followed me around on more than twenty times, calling me names. His name calling got to stand and a moderator deleted my challenge to that poster's trolling.

    Well, the moderators / administrators now see that at least two posters disagree with that way of doing business. For those who have to tolerate that, it is not interesting nor entertaining... except for the sick puppies that delight in trolling others and calling them names.

    A snarky comment is one thing. Providing fertile ground for sick people to harass and intimidate their fellow posters is a completely different thing. Let's hope the people with the power to make that call take a hint.
